Sumo Tournament

We tried to get Nathan to pose with one of the "real" sumo wrestlers but he wouldn't.

This last photo is of one of the wrestlers heading home. He shuffled down the street and got into a taxi. The back end of the taxi was definitely low to the road!!

We let Spence and Nathan skip school today to go to the Sumo Tournament. It was fun. It's hard to believe how "flexible" these guys really are. Some of their thighs are as big around as tree trunks. Ben didn't go with us because he is on a school trip. He is gone to IZU for this whole week. Swimming with the dolphins and snorkeling. We haven't heard from him so hope all is well.

May 16, 2009

Seventeen years ago on this day . . . (I continue with the whole hugely pregnant and subsequent birth story -- the kids love it!!)

Each birthday of my kids I have to say this because my dad said it to me all growing up!!

Spencer had an extra fun birthday because it was Prom at ASIJ.

Isn't he handsome!!

They made a cute couple in their classic black.
